WA:Dave Workman: State GOP endorses 591, opposes 594; antis running scared?

Yesterday’s revelation that billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety lobbying group has dumped another $1 million into the Initiative 594 campaign raised a pointed question last night from a Seattle Times reader reacting to the story.


Reader Tom Jones pointedly asked, “Why does it take $10 million to pass something that ‘the overwhelming majority of Washington voters already support’? Especially when the opposition is mostly volunteers passing out bumper stickers and photocopied flyers that just explain what I-594 would actually do.”

Why, indeed? Perhaps the answer can be found on YouTube, where yesterday the National Rifle Association launched another video, this one featuring Seattleite Anette Wachter, a member of the U.S. Long Range Rifle Team. Her message focuses on the law enforcement opposition to I-594, the 18-page gun control measure against which grassroots activists are gaining traction.
